Orthotics & Prosthetics is an allied health profession related to the design, manufacture and application of orthopedic braces and artificial limbs. Northeast Rehab works with an exceptional orthotics and prosthetics company, Capital Orthotics and Prosthetics, to provide services to our patients.

This coordinated team approach, along with addressing each patient’s individual needs and goals, ensures the patient receives the optimal device and therapy to maximize function. The team can also quickly and effectively address any needs or problems that may arise, make adjustments to current devices and offer guidance to meet changing lifestyle needs.
